Details: John McNichol, in service of Charles Griffiths charged with theft and absconding from his masters service. Charles Griffiths states - the prisoner was assigned to me last week. I purchased a pair of shoes for him, for which I paid twelve shillings; I also gave him a blanket. On Tuesday last he absconded from my farm taking away the blanket and shoes. I also lost at the same time a bag, a knife, 2 balls of cotton, 3 silver spoons about ten pounds of flour and seven pounds of beef. I cannot say the prisoner stole these articles but they disappeared about the same time that he did. Thomas Bishop constable, being sworn states - I was sent in pursuit of the prisoner. On my way to Wallis Plains I met Mr. Sparke s shepherd who told me that McNichol had been at his hut and had exchanged with him a blanket for a shirt. I took the blanket form him. He told me McNichol had gone to Wallis Plains. I followed and found him there and took him into custody. I was assisted in the pursuit by two black natives. I took the shirt from him. That and the blanket are those before the court. The shoes now produced were on his feet at the time I took him. The prisoner admits having taken the blanket and shoes - states they were given to him by Mr. Griffiths. Denies knowledge of the other articles. John McNichol sentenced to 3 years in a penal settlement

Details: Patrick Cavanagh, in the service of Mr. Charles Griffiths, charged with neglect of work and insolent language to his Mater. Charles Griffiths states - on Tuesday last the prisoner was at work on my farm, he had his jacket on at the time. I did not think he could work properly and I desired him to take it off, he refused to obey, saying - You bloody old fellow, til very hard I cant have my own way - and threw his hoe towards me saying he would not work any more for me. He then quitted my farm and I heard no more of him til I was informed he was in the watch house at Newcastle. His general conduct has been very bad, frequently neglecting work. The Chief Constable states - the prisoner came to me on Tuesday evening he said he had left his masters farm on account of ill-usage from him. The prisoner states in his defence that his master was continually calling him a lazy Irish scoundrel although upon the average he broke up thirteen rod of ground per day besides milking three cows. That upon several occasions lately his master has taken his blanket from him and turned him out to sleep all night in a hollow tree and that he has also frequently taken away his jacket. Charles Griffiths admits that upon one ot two occasions when the prisoner was insolent and refused to work he has taken away his blanket and turned him out of the house for the night, also admits having taken away the jacket occasionally but that it was to take care of it. Upon these admissions the charged were dismissed and Mr. Griffiths was informed that if a recurrence of this treatment again took place towards his government servant he would be taken from him. Cavanagh was at the same time admonished to conduct himself in a respectful manner towards his master

Details: No runs of fresh water were seen in my excursions; but Mr. Charles Grimes surveyor-general of New South Wales afterwards found several, and in particular, a small river falling into the northern head of the port. Mr. Grimes was sent by governor King, in 1803, to walk round, and survey the harbour; and from his plan I have completed my chart of Port Phillip. The parts of the coast left unshaded are borrowed from him, and the soundings written at right angles are those of his companion, Lieutenant Robbins.
